The governor of the state of New York will leave the post amid allegations of sexual harassment from 11 women on his part.
US President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that he respects the decision of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign amid allegations of sexual harassment from 11 women on his part.
“I respect the governor’s decision, and I respect the decision he made,” he said, commenting on Cuomo’s resignation at the request of reporters at the White House.
In his statement on Tuesday, the governor noted that the state prosecutor’s office report, indicating that he was caught in inappropriate behavior, contains many inaccuracies, especially “about the most serious charges.” According to him, the decision to resign will come into force in two weeks. The governor apologized to all the women who could have suffered from his actions but stressed that he did not seek to offend them in one way or another or put them in an awkward position.
